    Have you tried swapping the leds around to ensure they are polarised correctly?

    I got SMT type ones in both my S4 and the A6 and yes they will only work 1 way round , never seen them with a dull glow tho? I have had the style you have linked to but they didnt last very long in either car.

    As said, will only work in polarised position, unlike standard bulbs.
